DATA BREACH ALERT: EDELSON LECHTZIN LLP IS INVESTIGATING CLAIMS ON BEHALF OF CUSTOMERS OF HIGHMARK INC. HEALTH INSURER
The law firm of Edelson Lechtzin LLP is investigating claims regarding data privacy violations by Highmark Inc. (“Highmark” or the “COMPANY”) resulting from a data breach that occurred between December 13-15, 2022. The breach was a result of an employee clicking on a phishing email that allowed the unauthorized access to the customer files.
Highmark disclosed the breach recently after almost two months from the date of the breach. The Company estimates that as many as 300,000 customers may have had their data compromised. The data may include names, medical and treatment-related information, driver’s license numbers, financial information and social security numbers.
Edelson Lechtzin LLP is investigating bringing a class action lawsuit to seek legal remedies on behalf of the customers that may have had their personal and patient data compromised by the Highmark data breach.
